The company

AIF Alternativ Invest Finance AGis one of the first inde­pen­dent asset manage­ment com­pa­nies in   Liechtenstein. Since 2006, we have offe­red a wide ran­ge of invest­ment stra­te­gies and solu­ti­ons for pri­va­te cli­ents, insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors and cor­po­ra­te cli­ents worldwide.

We belie­ve that sta­tis­ti­cal­ly rigo­rous and robust mar­ket ana­ly­ses in par­ti­cu­lar reli­ab­ly iden­ti­fy con­ti­nuous alpha sources that exist due to inef­fi­ci­en­ci­es in the beha­vi­or of mar­ket par­ti­ci­pants. We are lar­ge­ly quan­ti­ta­ti­ve in all aspects of tra­de. Strategy selec­tion, port­fo­lio design, exe­cu­ti­on and risk con­trol are usual­ly accom­pa­nied by algo­rith­mic and sys­te­ma­tic processes.

Our goal is to achie­ve a con­sis­tent, abso­lu­te return with a con­sis­tent, abso­lu­te return with a per­for­mance result uncor­re­la­ted or nega­tively cor­re­la­ted com­pa­red to various US inde­xes such as the S & P 500 index or the US Government Bond index, as well as hedge fund inde­xes. Our tra­ding pro­grams offer clear diver­si­fi­ca­ti­on benefits.

Investors who added our tra­ding stra­te­gies to their port­fo­li­os bene­fi­ted from above-average ear­nings in the medi­um to long term, while redu­cing risk of their over­all port­fo­lio (posi­ti­ve cor­re­la­ti­on effects).

We offer UCITS funds that have an excel­lent long-term track record, dai­ly liqui­di­ty and low to no cor­re­la­ti­on with other mar­ket inde­xes. Brokerage ser­vices for fixed inco­me and struc­tu­red pro­ducts com­ple­te the invest­ment offering.

We invest world­wi­de and pri­ma­ri­ly pur­sue a long/short approach, based on tech­ni­cal­ly selec­ted invest­ments – we do not cha­se mar­ket news. Our invest­ment stra­te­gies are based on long-term track records. Customers under­stand our pro­ces­ses and port­fo­li­os becau­se they are trans­pa­rent. Systematic ana­ly­sis models form the basis of our invest­ment perspective.

In the ser­vice area you will find detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on about our UCITS funds.

Using the examp­le of our PAM funds: Risk con­trol is both proac­ti­ve and reac­ti­ve. Proactive risk con­trols inclu­de restric­tions on leverage and sca­ling posi­ti­ons, tailo­red to pro­duct vola­ti­li­ty and return targets.

Our typi­cal expo­sure is about 1/4 of maxi­mum expo­sure, and some­ti­mes our stra­te­gies can be com­ple­te­ly out of the mar­ket. Proactive risk con­trol con­ti­nues to be pro­vi­ded through stra­te­gy diver­si­fi­ca­ti­on. Reactive risk con­trols invol­ve a stop loss on positions.

As a tes­ta­ment to the strength of our invest­ment exper­ti­se, our PAM Alpha Fund recei­ved the award for Best Alternative Investment from GELD-MAGAZIN in 2016 and 2018.

In March 2017, FFW® awar­ded the PAM Alpha Fund a five (= hig­hest rating) FWW FUNDSTARS® rating. FFW® ana­ly­zes over 26.5000 mutu­al fund stock clas­ses based on return and volatility.

Established finan­cial cen­ters such as New York, London and Singapore are incre­a­singly expe­ri­en­cing com­pe­ti­ti­on from inno­va­ti­ve, tax-friendly and well-regulated eco­no­mies around the glo­be. We expect this trend to con­ti­nue as long as tech­no­lo­gi­cal advan­ces con­ti­nue to decen­tra­li­se the finan­cial industry.

Liechtenstein is rising rapidly in the finan­cial world due to its reco­gni­zed regu­la­to­ry envi­ron­ment, an attrac­ti­ve tax sys­tem and its geo­gra­phi­cal loca­ti­on. There are no inco­me taxes for assets under manage­ment. Funds are not sub­ject to VAT, and funds may even be con­si­de­red tax-exempt par­ties . After all, no with­hol­ding taxes are paya­ble for divi­dend payouts. On top of that, cor­po­ra­ti­on tax in Liechtenstein is just 12.5 — signi­fi­cant­ly lower than in many neigh­bo­ring coun­tries.

The offi­cial lan­guage is German, the offi­cial cur­ren­cy is the Swiss franc, and the coun­try has deep eco­no­mic ties to Switzerland and the European Economic Area. Liechtenstein, as Switzerland’s neigh­bor, has long been lin­ked to the Swiss ban­king sec­tor and the talen­ted employees who brea­the life into it. For inves­tors, this means that Liechtenstein-based fund mana­gers are likely to be among the best and smar­test talents in the finan­cial indus­try. At AIF Alternative Invest Finance AG, we are proud of our roots in Liechtenstein.

Liechtenstein is one of only 12 coun­tries in the world to be rated AAA’s hig­hest credit rating by Standard & Poor’s. This credit rating is lar­ge­ly due to Liechtenstein having abso­lute­ly no public debt . Since 2008, the natio­nal debt has risen world­wi­de and it is almost impos­si­ble to find ano­t­her deve­lo­ped eco­no­my that has abso­lute­ly no debt on its public record. In addi­ti­on to this eco­no­mic sta­bi­li­ty, the­re is a poli­ti­cal envi­ron­ment that offers new and exis­ting com­pa­nies a high degree of legal cer­tain­ty . As a result, pri­va­te inves­tors need not worry about choo­sing an inde­pen­dent asset mana­ger in Liechtenstein, for examp­le becau­se of regime chan­ge or poli­ti­cal upheaval.
